NTSB investigators used data provided by various entities, including, but not limited to, the Federal Aviation Administration and/or the operator and did not travel in support of this investigation to prepare this aircraft accident report.

During the landing roll on a 3,455-foot long and 40-foot wide asphalt runway, the airplane exited the left side of the runway and struck a parked airplane. The 5,000-hour pilot reported that the airplane would veer to the left each time brakes were applied despite multiple attempts. The pilot added that during an earlier flight that day, he noticed that the airplane "pulled slightly to the left as brakes were applied." The wind near the accident site was reported as calm. Examination of the airplane revealed that the braking system was free of anomalies.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during landing roll. A contributing factor was reported partial loss of brake control.
